  • Apple MacBook Air 11in (Late 2010) review

    Build Quality: 9/10
    Features: 8/10
    Value for Money: 8/10
    Overall: 9/10

    Unlike a netbook, the 11in MacBook Air will rarely keep you waiting. A 5-hour-plus battery is good, running longer in the Air’s native Mac OS X. And measured statistics don’t show what a delight the 11in is to hold and work with. A perfect carry-anywhere notebook? Not quite – a 3G modem’s absence is becoming embarrassing, while the screen resolution is just beyond the comfort level. Elsewhere, we have to give due credit. As an exceedingly compact notebook – or a dear netbook – that will happily and snappily run OS X, Linux or Windows, the MacBook Air 11in is the category’s new gold standard.

  • 11-inch and 13-inch Apple MacBook Air (Late 2010)

    Conclusion OUR VERDICT My original review of the MacBook Air ended with a simple question: “How much are you willing to compromise?” While it’s still true that a small, light laptop will require some degree of compromise on both speed and price, over time Apple has made those compromises much less painful. It feels like, with these new 11- and 13-inch laptops, the MacBook Air product line has finally come of age. The 13-inch model addresses many of the old Air’s weaknesses (graphics performance, battery life) and offers speeds that aren’t far off the standard of the MacBook Pro line. And yet the 13-inch MacBook Air weighs 1.6 pounds less than what the 13-inch MacBook Pro weighs. Yes, the MacBook Air still costs more and does less than other 13-inch Apple laptops; if weight and size are not important considerations for you, you shouldn’t buy a MacBook Air. But if, all other things being (roughly) equal, you’d prefer a lighter laptop, the MacBook Air deserves your serious consideration. There’s no previous-generation analog to compare the 11-inch MacBook Air against; it’s a completely new kind of Mac laptop, the smallest the company has ever built. But the high resolution of the 11.6-inch screen keeps it from feeling cramped, the full-sized keyboard is comfortable, and its slower processor is offset by its speedy solid-state drive and good integrated graphics processor. People seeking a small, light system for writing and email will find the £849/$999 base model irresistible. Those who want to upgrade its drive, processor, and RAM will want to consider its small size versus the slightly larger 13-inch model, which comes equipped with a better set of specs. But while the 13-inch model is just as light and thin as the MacBook Air has ever been, it looks like a hog in comparison to the 11-inch model. The MacBook Air product line still isn’t for everyone. But those who value smallness and lightness above all else will find the 13-inch model more tempting than ever. And that 11-inch dynamo, the smallest and lightest laptop in Apple history, the one with the $999 price tag? It’s quite possibly the most desirable laptop Apple has ever made. The release of the iPad made me wonder if I’d consider a Mac laptop as my constant traveling companion ever again; the release of the 11-inch MacBook Air proves that there’s still plenty of life left in the Mac after all.
